Oh baby, football season right around the corner and Jaguars owner Shahid Khan is already calling Texas for being on their poor people shit. The billionaire owner put up this billboard in an apparent attempt to hype up the pussy cat Jags’ upcoming season. I respect the move and hate it at the same time. First off, you do realize your team sucks right? When your team is as much of a laughing stock as the Jaguars, pretty sure you should just keep your mouth shut and wait for them to produce something on the field before you call out an actual franchise like the Dallas Cowboys and their irrelevant little brother the Houston Texans.
Shahid Khan has big plans for the team and It’s honestly pretty sick what he’s doing. Making pool side cabana’s in an NFL stadium is fucking dope. Marketing genius right there. I like how he’s going with the strategy of; If you build it, they will come.
Talking about sports a little more, I do like the direction the Jags are going. Cutting ties with their loose end, cap devouring, underperforming players like MJD and Jason Babin. Cutting Blaine Gabbert was also an excellent move in the right direction since he’s arguable a bigger bust than Ryan Leaf IMO. So good, out with the old, in with the new. They stacked up their receiving core by taking Allen Robinson and Marquise Lee in the draft which is also a good move. Drafting your future franchise QB, even better! Poor kid is going to need all the help he can get when he’s eventually thrown into the fire down there.
Personally I think the Jags are still at least 3 years away from being a legitimate playoff contender, but in the NFL it’s impossible to predict the outcome for any team until the season gets underway. With a new running back in town, new QB, new receivers that don’t abuse alcohol, and a defensive mastermind as a head coach, things are looking bright for the Jags future. Unfortunately for them it’s still not enough to get past the Texans or the Colts just yet.
